Shampoo Bars are becoming increasing popular as a way to reduce plastic, provide multi-purpose uses, and often showcase specific hair-loving/skin-loving ingredients. I am very happy to see many of my favorite small business vendors creating their own versions of shampoo bars!
The Dirty Goat makes some of my favorite products, including the Probiotic Deodorant that I am always raving about, and has branched out to Shampoo Bars! I was very excited to try her shampoo bar, and see where she takes these new inventions and creations!
Her Shampoo Bar doubles as a Shave Soap! At first, I was very confused by this. Why would my Shampoo Bar be something that I rub on my legs for shaving? Most Shampoo Bars simply do not have that kind of softness or lather to them. This one does! This is the most moisturizing and nourishing lather that I have ever felt in any kind of shampoo, bar or not! It is luxurious and moisturizing, while giving your hair and scalp a deep clean. Most Shampoo Bars leave my curly hair feeling dry, but not this one! It provides a deep clean, while nourishing my hair and scalp. My curls are left moisturized and not frizzy, which is a huge plus in my book!
Now the scent! My word, does this smell good! Ever Since New York smells of sweet blackberries, tart lemons, and butter vanilla. To my nose I smell the sweet blackberries and warm vanilla at the front, with the tart lemon underneath it all to make it more rounded and not so sweet. This scent is amazing and fills the whole bathroom when warmed in the shower. I also love that I can take my hair down at the end of my day and get a hint of blackberry, lemon and vanilla! It is the little things in life 🙂
This Shampoo Bar is huge! It is a thick, solid bar that is 3 oz of love and comes in a biodegradable, compostable wrapper because that is The Dirty Goat, and they are awesome and care for our environment!
